Re: Locker bypass kit

Here's updated pics of the kit in question. Unfortunately for this one, to make it plug-and-play, I needed to manufacture the male connectors that connected to the factory connector that goes to the sensor. The female ones are readily available and I already had the terminals in stock for them alon...

Re: Truck Coming in April - Will have 33s/Wheels/Grill

Personal opinion, I always see guys on FB and Ram forum spending forever trying to unload their wheels and asking too much and having no luck, then reducing the price, over and over. The most successful are the ones who separate the wheels from the tires. The OE tires are crap. Get them pulled off ...

Re: 2019 1500 Info Release

I like it well enough I guess. My major gripe is I absolutely hate the tire tread and special vehicle embroidery seats. I disliked it in the current model years and the next gen is going to be just as bad. If I were buying a new PW or Rebel i'd reupholster the seats. The rest remains to be seen, I'm...

Re: Dodge Off Road brand reliability

I was really surprised how well the brace tightens up steering feel. Very worthwhile. I am still mad about yours going out with D shaped holes. We had a full staff meeting over that yesterday and two of my guys came up with a way to prevent that in the future. In my opinion, and the way I always di...

You could probably make the kit yourself for $20. $200 just to ride around with poor transmission mapping is laughable.

Re: snorkel guys .. need your input

I actually have noticed I have to clean the filterless, especially since I made sure it's all sealed. I would imagine if you keep the stock unit and use the pre-filter it should stay cleaner. Interesting observation, you can hear the intake sucking from outside the vehicle if you stand by it when i...

I thought Aduleca had AAM 4.88’s? Read the detailed thread, because I asked about that and clarification. He has Yukons. I thought he started out with yukons and traded up for AAM’s after....

Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

Minor thread hijack. Are you guys just using the Procal to adjust tire sizes? I have the rental devices coming to fix tire size, add fog lights to high beams, and adjust tpms without dealer intervention. I'm just wondering if I'm missing the boat on something with the Procal? The Procal is worth ow...

Perfect would have moved the air filter so we could mount a second battery in the same location as the diesel trucks.

When Thuren regeared his truck for the 38’s he had a dealership do it and used oem AAM parts. Preserved the warranty that route apparently He used the gears out of a PW.

Yes...multiple 88's side by side. I think just about every tracked unit in the history of the Army has gotten multiple recovery vehicles stuck at the same time. Tracks are magnetized to POV's too.

If you have the correct tools and do it by the book, you should be 100% fine. Just like any precision assembly.

I looked up the specs in the owners manual and is says 0w-40 for all conditions. Don't assume that the 0w is just for cold weather it could be required for other reasons if it was my engine I would stick with a name brand 0w-40 synthetic.
I believe MDS relies on the viscosity specification.

Re: 37" tires with 4.10 for those who do have

I've been running 37's for a year and a half. I keep kicking around changing gears but the truck drives fine. If I were towing I'd probably feel different. I'll probably regear when I go to 42's.
